Jessie Schmidt---Better Business Bureau of South Dakota warned listeners to be leery of unusual requests during Valentine’s Day.

· Beware of anyone who asks to talk or chat on an outside email or messaging services, as this allows fraudsters to carry out scams without the dating site having a record of the encounter.

· If they claim to be from country but is currently traveling, living or working abroad.

· Asks you for money or credit card information

· Sends you emails containing questionable links to 3rd party websites
